Depth

The depth of a vessel is a measure of the 'heighth' of the hull. It is a measure from the lowest moulded fairbody point of a vessel (moulded baseline) to the top of camber on the weather deck (excluding the thickness of deck plating). The difference between a vessels depth and waterline is the vessels freeboard.

Moulded Depth

The moulded depth is the distance from the baseline to the top of camber on the weather deck, at midships (excluding the thickness of deck plating).

Moulded Depth in Ships with Extended Bulkheads

Where the watertight subdivision bulkheads extend past the freeboard deck, the moulded depth may be given to the bulkhead deck, subject to approval from classification (i.e., to consider this area as effective).

Scantling Depth

The scantling depth is the distance from baseline to the top of camber of the strength deck.
